I've included the vast majority of [the uploads] of Commons:User:BruceBlaus until August 2014, with permission. Generally, each image that is included in the article is regarded to be accurate and faithfully depicting the subject at hand. Also, the anatomic detail is outstanding. Some images, however, where not includes, as explained below:


Some where dealing rather with chemistry, so I didn't include them because I didn't really think they were off-topic for this journal:

Additional images regarded off-topic are displayed below:

Better versions available

Some images also appeared to be duplicates of each other, with insignificant differences between them. They are displayed below, with the right one chosen for inclusion in Wikiversity Journal:

A bit more detail.

Also displays vessels.

More detail.

Left claims to be autograft, bot does not specifically show any direction (such as an arrow) to the recipient (that is, a direction back to the donor in this case)

Greater detail.

Shows both regurgitation and stenosis. I found no image for mitral valve regurgitation only.

Both aortic valve regurgitation and stenosis. Individual images, whereof the stenosis one was not included, as per explanation in section below.

Image with corrected directions for sodium and potassium by the pump, and without unexplained minus-particles.


Following are additional images that I didn't include:

Aortic stenosis.

The aortic stenosis image shows a completely closed valve and apparently no flow through it at all, which is a state that is not seen in living patients.

Stable vs. unstable atherosclerotic plaque.

The image depicting a stable vs. unstable atherosclerotic plaque doesn't really give a clear explanation regarding the differences between these two types, since basically the only difference you see between the images is the diameter of the lumen, while actual plaque stability depends largely on the constitution of the plaque.

Neonatal heart circulation.

The neonatal heart circulation image shows blood exclusively moving from the pulmonary artery to the pulmonary vein, but I think the reverse would normally occur after birth, unless there is development of Eisenmenger's syndrome (which rarely occurs from a patent ductus arteriosus). Before inclusion in Wikiversity Journal, an explanation would be needed for this direction of flow, or a correction.

Partially blocked vessel.

The image depicting a partially blocked vessel doesn't provide significantly more information than other Blausen images depicting atherosclerotic blood vessels.

Cardiac tamponade.

The of a cardiac tamponade where the entire heart is surrounded by blood is difficult to interpret. On the other hand, the File:Blausen 0164 CardiacTamponade 02.png image is superior in this sense by conveniently displaying the location of hemopericardium.

PID sites

The image showing PID sites appears to show the whole female genital system, making it very unspecific.

Fetal alcohol syndrome.

The image of fetal alcohol syndrome gives an important message, but the presence of a glass inside the uterus makes it rather unencyclopaedic.


The cholesterol image doesn't give any explanation of what is going on in the image.

Diabetes type 1
Diabetes type 2

The images of diabetes type 1 and 2 lack any proper explanation of what is going on in the images.

Placement of electrodes for brain mapping.

The "brain mapping" image lacks an explanation for why it is related to brain mapping Also, it should have an explanation of how the electrodes are put in those deep locations.

Alzheimer's disease.

The Alzheimer's disease image appears to show neurofibrillary tangles outside the nerve cell body, while other sources describe them as being inside.

Spinal cord.

The spinal cord image clearly delineates neurological parts by a yellow coloring, but this coloring does not specifically cover the spinal cord, but also the peripheral nerves radiating from it, making the image unspecific.

Hip anatomy.

The hip anatomy image is unspecific regarding whether the hip bone or the hip region is referred to. If it refers to the hip bone, then then femur and the spine should not be included. If it refers to the hip region, the spine should not be included.

Post-publication peer review

Second peer review - intracranial electrodes

I removed the image Intracranial electrode grid for electrocorticography.png, since the concern raised at its talk page needs attention before it can be reinserted, as copied to box below from that page. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 16:57, 30 August 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This figure is not anatomically accurate. The dura is usually not reflected over the convexity of the brain since the superior sagital sinus occupies that space and signifies a significant surgical risk. Therefore, you would not expose the central sulcu bilaterally as shown in this figure.
